    What is your favourite Christopher Nolan film?

    I've just finished seeing BB and TDK again today in anticipation of seeing TDKR day after. I'm certainly very much looking forward for it. I've also seen Following a week ago and found it be a rather decent movie which is pretty underrated, though by no means a contender for this poll.

    For me it has to be The Prestige by a decent margin. It's my second most favourite movie ever after Goodfellas. Just a staggering cinematic achievement tbh. There's an awesome subtlety in dialogue in The Prestige which is absent in the more sensational style of writing adopted in TDK and Inception, which to be fair are pretty amazing movies.

    I'm so glad I'm growing up in the Nolan era, if truth be told.

    It's an extremely tough one, but I went for the movie I can't get enough of. TDK. Memento a close second.

    Memento for me. Genuine mind-**** of a film.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I'd go The Prestige > Inception > The Dark Knight > Batman Begins > The Dark Knight Rises > Memento > Insomnia

    Genuinely like all of those films though.

    I'd go with this too.

    Originally I was one of those BB > TDK peeps. But after my latest viewings I have changed my mind.

    Still can't find Memento in any DVD store btw. ****s me off.

    Not seen Memento or Insomnia. Must address that.

    I'd place TDKR/TDK/Prestige/BB/Inception I think, of those I have seen. But as I said in another thread, dust needs to settle on rises before I have my true opinion.

    I feel like it's Inception Lite. It's a fantastic story but Inception just feels so much 'tighter' in terms of storytelling.

    Mind you, I LOVED memento, so we're talking about two fantastic movies here.

    Really? I felt like it was the complete opposite.
